    Yummy! I did use dutch-processed cocoa but added a little extra baking soda. My bread baked/rose just fine and was very tasty. I also used dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet (personal preference). Will use this recipe again!

    Yummly! I mean, YUMMY! Used CACAO, instead of of COCOA; used Organic Cane Sugar, instead of plain granulated. Everything else, as per the recipe. It did overflow the loaf pan in the oven (weird.)

    Great! I’ve made it before and it is a nice change from the usual banana bread.

    I went light on the chocolate chips, subbed 1/3 of the sugar for fake sugar and added coconut flakes and pecans to the top. I also used buttermilk instead of sour cream. Amazing!
    I didn’t use soar cream and it was still delicious

    It turned out great. Nice and moist. My kids really liked it and is a great substitute for the zucchini bread they love, and has long been frozen, thawed and eaten.

    Always turns out great! An extra banana might suit some, but it is great as is! And since I am impatient rather than waiting an hour and a half for a loaf I make mine in a muffin tin. This way they are done on about 20 minutes instead!
